Celebrations at the MA Show

Congratulations to our graduating MA students, whose outstanding work is exhibited in the MA Show, on until Saturday 10 September.

The MA ceremony took place on Monday 5 September, in a wonderful celebration of the students’ success and achievements, with students, staff, family, friends and supporters coming together.

The event was also the perfect opportunity to welcome the Art School’s new Principal, Dr Lois Rowe, who has taken up her post this week. Lois was able to meet many of the Art School’s friends, supporters and partners and is looking forward to meeting many more in the coming weeks and months.
